EL AL is out with a clever new safety video that involves a bit of magic and a bit of slight of hand. I’ll give the airline credit for creating a gripping safety video.
Watch the video first:
I’m not a psychologist and cannot explain how the power of suggestion works, but it seems the chosen card stood out for being red and displayed clearly for a few extra nanoseconds. Either that, or…
But it is highly entertaining and at least for me, quite spellbinding. That’s the mark of well-done safety video.
It reminds me of the Turkish Airlines video, which also uses similar optical illusions, but the EL AL one is even better.
If you enjoyed the video, you can watch the behind-the-scenes video below, which reveals some of the secrets of the video:
I cannot wait to fly EL-AL, hopefully later this year or early in 2019. The carrier not only has a new safety video, but a beautiful new business class cabin aboard its new 787 aircraft. We’ve heard rumors of 787s service starting at LAX, but thus far the 777 persists…that’s not a first or business class product I care to waste 200K miles on.
What do you think of the new safety video?
